The Best Coffee Table Books on Amazon!

What’s up, friends? Welcome or welcome back to the blog.

I hope you’re enjoying the remainder of February and taking time to slow down and savor those precious moments.  Don’t forget to stay hydrated and get plenty of rest.

Coffee table books have gained some traction over the last few years, and we’ve seen a revival.  From travel to Chanel and This Old Home or books on your favorite artist, you can always find something beautiful to display.

Back in the day, every African American household you entered proudly displayed their Jet or Ebony magazines.  I don’t know any of my friends or family that didn’t have a subscription back then.  Even though most coffee table books are used merely for decor, I read mine.  I get inspired by the room designs and what elements are used to make it cohesive.  The photography is beautiful, and I find myself adding all these ideas to my “New Home” wish list. (LOL)

The books used to be expensive, but now they are a fraction of the cost, and between Amazon, discount bookstores, TJ Maxx, or Marshalls there’s a price for every wallet. Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite (decor-themed) coffee table books.

and so it goes.

1. Home with Rue: Style for Everyone
Beautiful design should be available to everyone regardless of location, style, or budget. As a pioneer in the digital magazine industry, Rue has inspired thousands since establishing their business in 2010. Rue’s editorial director, Kelli Lamb, has created this incredible collection to carry their style and advice into book form.

2. It’s the Little Things: Creating Big Moments in Your Home Through The Stylish Small Stuff
inspires us to be personal and artful with our decorating choices, creating spaces that reflect our personality. Organized by type of design arrangement, from full rooms designed with attention to detail and entire walls depicting inspiring arrangements of art and objects to more intimate still lifes arrayed on desktops, mantels, and bookshelves, It’s the Little Things shows us how to display our beloved objects to create sophisticated interiors.

3. Made for Living: Collected Interiors for All Sorts of Styles
Designing a room with all the vibes depends on how you layer your décor. The more you mix the elements of your room—your pillows, objects, patterns, and lighting—the more finished it’ll feel: not too new, not too old, but just right.

4. Making a House a Home: Designing Your Interiors from the Floor Up
Whether you’ve recently moved into a new place or want to revamp and refresh your current home, Salk outlines how to conceive and create a cohesive design for your space.  Beginning with the fundamental elemental aspects of any interior—such as floors, doors, walls, and windows—and proceeding to fundamental decor decisions, like setting the design tone and making sure your rooms are livable and functional, this book walks you through the process, sharing approaches and techniques for designing every interior element.

5. Perfect English Style: Creating Rooms That Are Comfortable, Pleasing, and Timeless
Some styles of decorating have a longer shelf life than others. One of the most durable is what has come to be known as English Country Style, which works just as well in a city apartment or suburban home as it does in a rectory or manor house.

6. Your Space, Made Simple: Interior Design that’s Approachable, Affordable, and Sustainable
Your Space, Made Simple is an interior design guide for anyone who dreams of a well-designed home but doesn’t know where to begin. If you feel stuck when shopping for home decor or confused about how to arrange furniture, this book will give you the inspiration and tools you need to curate a space that fits you and your family’s lifestyle and needs in no time.

Thanks so much for visiting the blog today and checking out a few coffee table books I enjoy.  I own the “Made for Living” and the “Home With Rue” books.  I love exploring all the styles and trying to incorporate some of them into my space.  Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe, and I’ll meet you back here for my next post. — Peace
